Need: Combo Forward/Floor General
The Kings should build from the draft this offseason and stay away from the high-priced free agents. None of them fit and all are overpriced.
In terms of the rotation, this team lacks a floor general and a combo forward.
I like Isaiah Thomas, but not as my floor general. I like him as my spark off the bench to provide some instant offense.
Trey Burke is a guy the Kings should be looking to trade up for if necessary. He can control the offense and balance scoring with facilitating while keeping the ball secure. Michael Carter-Williams is another option, though he's still a few years away from being a regular NBA contributor.
The front court, on the other hand, is too predictable up front.
They've got low-percentage scorers at the wing and one-dimensional power forwards down low.
Points up front are where you get your easy baskets, and the Kings don't get enough of them.
A combo forward is an offensive mismatch—someone with size and strength to play the 4 and the quickness and agility to play the 3. The Kings could target Anthony Bennett of UNLV, who averaged over 16 points and eight rebounds.
Bennett, or Otto Porter, another versatile offensive forward, could be targets for Sacramento to trade up for if necessary.
